Nicola Gunn
Piece for Person and Ghetto Blaster

Wednesday-Friday January 17-19, 2018 8pm
Scotiabank Dance Centre
677 Davie St, Vancouver

Piece for Person and Ghetto Blaster is a provocative muse on peace and conflict, moral relativism and the very function of art, inspired by an incident where a woman saw a man throwing stones at a sitting duck, and she yelled at him. The result is a gloriously off-kilter dissection of the excruciating realms of human behaviour, and a navigation of the moral and ethical complexities of intervention. Australia’s Nicola Gunn is an irresistible performer, delivering a dizzyingly witty text littered with anecdotes, digressions and philosophical theory, at the same time performing non-stop choreography that shifts from the comically incongruous to the strangely affecting.

Presented with PuSh International Performing Arts Festival
